The application process for 2016/17 halls of residence will open in mid-January

Am I eligible for halls of residence?

Undergraduate students

You’ll be guaranteed accommodation in university halls or university-managed accommodation if you’re a new first year undergraduate who:

  • is holding an unconditional firm or conditional firm offer (UF or CF) at the university,
  • for UK/EU: has accepted the University of Gloucestershire as your first choice and applied for accommodation by 30 April 2016.
  • for international: has accepted your University of Gloucestershire offer and applied for accommodation by 12 August 2016

You’ll be able to select your preferred halls during the application process. We cannot guarantee meeting your request, but we will allocate as closely as possible. Please note that the earlier you apply the better chance you will have of getting one of your preferred choices.

Disabled students

The university’s halls of residence have accessible rooms on all campuses. These rooms tend to be larger than the other rooms in halls with more accessible bathroom facilities and flexible interiors to suit the level of need required. 

The university endeavours to accommodate the needs of students with disabilities. In order to assist the accommodation office with specific requirements, we encourage you to initially contact one of our disability advisers. Call 01242 714541 or email and state your requirements.

Postgraduate students

If you are a UK/EU postgraduate student halls of residence rooms are not available. However you can find more about other options available through accommodation information for postgraduate students.

If you are an international postgraduate student there are limited halls of residence rooms specifically available for you. lf you’re a new international postgraduate student entering your studies at the university who has firmly accepted their offer, and you have completed the online halls of residence application process by 12 August 2016, you will be eligible. Otherwise, find more accommodation information for international postgraduate students

How do I apply?

You can apply for halls of residence here.

If you have any problems completing the halls application process, please see our halls application troubleshooting document.

When do I get confirmation if I’ve been allocated a room?

If successful, instructions about accepting your room offer will be emailed to the email address you registered with UCAS at the time of application in July 2016.

Instructions will include completing the room acceptance process via our Halls Portal. Here you will be given details of your room, dates of occupancy, rent and the full terms and conditions.

You will also need to make a payment of £200 at this time along with setting up a direct debit for rent payment within seven days of receiving your room offer.

If you accept an offer of a place in residence, you will be signing a legally-binding contract for the full period stated on the offer letter.

Terms and conditions: for many reasons, including the health and safety of all student residents, there are certain terms and conditions you agree to when accepting a place in residence. You can find a copy of these during the room offer acceptance process. Please note all halls are non-smoking. No halls students are permitted to bring vehicles.
